3 1/2 hours for dinner? – I went to Casa Pepe on Saturday with a group of 8. First, our reservation was "lost" ... but they were nice about it and got us a table within 20 minutes. I would like to say it was wonderful from there, but the truth is that the service was HORRIBLE. We waited forever to get our order taken. We waited FOREVER for the food. We even waited forever for coffee! We got at the restaurant at 8:00 and left at 11:30. Ridiculous!
I would recommend this restaurant only if you have extreme patience or if you're someone who can keep on top of servers to make sure things arrive quickly. If you can deal with that, then definitely go there - the food, while overshadowed by the terrible service, was outstanding. Our table gave rave reviews to the paella, steak, ribs and the beef chimichangas.
A Big Dissapointment – With so many great reviews, we expected a sure thing. But, after an hour and a half of frustration
- Arrived at 8:00, with a reservation, waited 30 minutes.
- Two margaritas, one frozen & one on the rocks. They were pre-made, laced with sour mix (first sign of a bad margarita), and weak.
- Finally seated in the garden room. Tried the sangria, it was ok.
- Seated for one hour, no appetizers, no water, no drink refills.
- The inept service waiter brought our appetizers to the table next to us. He wandered aimlessly, asking who ordered what.
- All the couples around us, who were seated after us, received their appetizers, but we were somehow forgotten.
- It was now 9:30, we were starving and pissed. We just walked out, they never noticed.
- Thanks for ruining our Saturday night; you just lost two would-have-been loyal customers.
Bay Ridge Classic – I dined in the Main Dining Room which is surrounded by authentic Spanish decorations. We were served guacamole which was prepared tableside. The main dish was perfection! Overall--this Bay Ridge restaurant is a classic.
Great Party Venue – I attended a private party at Casa Pepe. What a wonderful time we had. The ambiance was wonderful, food excellent, service superb. If you are in Brooklyn, it is well worth the trip to Bay Ridge for this gem of a restaurant.
Simply Delicious!!! – I visited Casa Pepe last week and I couldnt be more impressed. The bar staff was very attentive and professional, and the drinks were perfect. I requested the romantic indoor garden dinning room and was seated right next to the roaring fireplace. The staff was courteous and explained the menu with detail. The appetizers were amazing, and the main course was delicious. My wife and I enjoyed our experience and we will definitely be returning in the near future. Casa Pepe is unquestionably the best restaurant in the Bay Ridge area.
Neighborhood Gem – Food is great and for the price its even better. Service was very good.
Awesome – Worth a visit. Margaritas perfect, service perfect, food great, I have no complaints. Try the Paella and the Chicken francese.
A++ – Casa Pepe deserves even more then a ten! Really. Its a great place we keep coming back to.
family place – Next time I'm making my reservations at Casa Pepe for New Years. My family and I went out to a terrible place and spent the whole time wishing we were at Casa Pepe. Casa Pepe has it all, the food, the service and the atmosphere. You can bet we'll visit Casa Pepe soon again!
Paella Heaven – Order a few margaritas, a few appetizers, a paella for two, and you are bound to have the perfect date! Or at least that is what my wife and I do every other saturday night at Casa Pepe. We keep coming back for the great food, friendly service, and the good time.
